Default New posts not showing up

OK,, I use this same board format of several different groups that I belong to, and "new post pull up based on last post time, latest time first.
here is what I don't get on this one.

Why does the post not go the the top of "new posts" after you respond to it?? Why does it not pull up by recent time?
Maybe this is not a problem for anyone else, but I respond to several post and I think about a thread and want to go back and reread it, and have to do a search instead of being able to be it in the most recent.

Mallie,

Your post or reply can be previewed & edited, or read immediately after Submit, and again edited,
But your own personal posts will not be in the new post area ,as David suggest it is in Todays posts, but only for 24 hours. It will always be on the homepage by date, until it is too old to be listed, then search to find it. Or search all post by member.

I find that google is the best way to perform a search; for instance, to find a post the I wrote on removing an LXi's anti-sway bar do this in a google search window:

Well, while this may not be exactly as the yahoo site, it is close and after you do it a few times it will become just as easy as the old yahoo site. I will outline the steps below as well as in the displayed picture.

THE DISPLAYED FORUM PAGE PICTURE IS A MODERATORS PAGE AND MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL ITEMS ON IT THAT DO NOT APPEAR ON YOUR FORUM PAGES.

1. STARTING AT THE FRONT HOMEPAGE CLICK ON “QUICK LINKS”
2. CLICK ON “TODAY'S POSTS” THE NEWEST MESSAGES WILL BE IN BOLD LETTERS
3. FROM THE LIST CLICK ON THE MESSAGE THAT YOU WANT TO READ
4. AFTER YOU HAVE READ THE MESSAGE CLICK ON THE BACK BROWSER ARROW THEN READ NEXT MESSAGE
5. AFTER YOU ARE DONE READING ALL OF THE MESSAGES, CLICK ON “QUICK LINKS” AGAIN
6. FROM THE DROP DOWN LIST CLICK ON “MARK FORUMS READ”
7. THE NEXT TIME THAT YOU COME TO THE FORUM IF THERE ARE NO NEW POSTS YOU WILL GET THIS MESSAGE, BUT YOU CAN CLICK ON “HERE” AND IT WILL THEN SHOW THE LAST 24 HOURS MESSAGES.

I strongly suggest that you use this method and not rely on your recent posts to show up under the New Posts which sometime is unreliable in showing new posts on the forum if at all.


If you have bean away from the forum for a while and want to find all of the posts that are new to you since your last visit, I suggest that you read this thread;
